It really felt like visiting old friends Mike & Julia were so hospitable & we felt very spoilt😃 They would do anything to make our stay comfortable & relaxing. The weather was very mixed but Julia showed us where to go & we loved that. The one nice day we decided to have our own BBQue in our court yard,... More

We loved the location, lots of great walks. Breakfast at the communal table was very nice. Dinner was fab too. If there is one hotel in Ireland... More

My husband, daughter, son-in-law and I stayed here for 3 nights and could not have felt more welcome and royally treated. The setting is breathtaking, and we loved the away-from-it-all feeling. Cute villages and great hiking on the Sheepshead Peninsula and museum in Skibberdeen about the potato famine is fascinating. Wish we could have stayed longer. The B &B breakfasts... More
